I've been using 5.1.1 since release and have not had any issues. I would try

It seems to be a random occurrence as with most problems, many others appear to have it, have tried reset and restore twice, still not working.
@jlewsader It did happen after my previous restore, however all my restores were computer based. Now a restore will not clear the problem either.

This definitely seems like the right idea, although I cannot find the app that is mentioned in this article used to delete that folder.
Knowing Apple they probably saw that app as a threat and removed it.
Will look for alternative ways to delete this folder.
EDIT: randomly deleted your comment? not sure what happened tried to clickthis helped me on your comment

I also found the rename, however it is £2.99... any spare change anyone? I also looked for iFunbox and DiskAid, no results.
I just looked in my iPhone link on my computer for moving photos, instead of finding /100APPLE there is a different folder for me, 860OKMZO. Google suggests this is new for the 4S, but either way cannot delete it using my pc.
EDIT i'm stupid, didnt realise these were actual computer programs, found and will test now.

GOT IT! For now.. i downloaded the program iExplorer onto my computer, fired it up, navigated to DCIM and deleted both folders in there, 100APPLE and a weird one that was .misc. Problems sorted now, I presume this will also be the fix if it decides to happen again. Thanks for your suggestions! Good luck also when you get home to do it!

Worked for me too!
Anyone else reading this...
- Download iExplorer, iFunDisk, or DiskAid
- find this folder and delete it: /private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100Apple
- Reset device by holding power and home button until white Apple logo

I'll have to give this a try. My wife has a new 4s (3 weeks old now) that has this problem randomly. Picture shows in the preview window of the camera, but isn't in the camera roll. Sometimes it appears for a couple of seconds in the preview window, then disappears from it. I'll report back on whether this was the problem/solution for me too after I give it a try.

Well, that folder doesn't exist. And I can't find the missing pics anywhere. The other sad part is that iExplorer works for maybe a minute then encounters an error and has to close. So this isn't the solution in my case.
